GET LAMP: Rob Griffiths


Publication date 2007-08-27
Language English
Rob is a perfect example of the benefits of not going just for "names" in a documentary about a wide-ranging subject - nothing on his resume says he was a big text adventure game player or person who was at the beginning of Zork. But there he was, a kid who had gotten into the MIT lab and seen early Zork being played and the effect it was having on the students and computer lab users. He was articulate and provided a wonderful dash of emotion into the descriptions which I used liberally in GET LAMP. He had a number of printouts which I also filmed (but didn't use). Many documentaries wouldn't count "just a player" as worth interviewing - Rob is proof that approach is short-sighted indeed.
